We are proud of our talented team at UBIQ Aerospace and would like to introduce some of our colleagues here on our website.
Astrid Myckland Stevik joined UBIQ as Product Manager in May 2020. She is working with the industrialization and commercialization of the D•ICE solution.
Can you tell us a bit about your background?
– I’m a chemical engineer from NTNU and throughout the past 20 years I’ve worked with project management and production development at GE Healthcare, SINTEF and in Q-Free, an intelligent transportation system company.
What motivates you?
– Developing something that is a benefit to the society. For example: the D•ICE solution can enable search & rescue in bad weather, when it is actually most needed. These challenges, and facing them together with the team, motivate me.
Who’s your favourite Nobel prize winner?
– Malala Yousafzai, the girl from Pakistan who got the Peace Prize. She represents many of the things I admire: courage, and the ability to rise above really bad circumstances and keep reaching for your goal.
Thank you Astrid! Last question: If you were a superhero, what powers would you have?
– A part of my job is trying to foresee what is going to happen in the close future. So it would be nice to actually see into the future! Even though it would be scary, too.
